"This booklet, then, serves to remedy this lack of practical information regarding Jhàna. It continues where I left off in my earlier booklet, the BASIC METHOD OF MEDITATION. It aims to describe the path into Jhàna, the characteristics of Jhana, and the relevance of Jhana to insight and Enlightenment. Without any appreciation of Jhàna, one’s understanding of Buddhism is incomplete."
- Ajahn Brahmavamso
AJAHN BRAHMAVAMSO was born in London in 1951. He regarded himself a Buddhist at the age of 17 through his reading of Buddhist books while still at school. His interest in Buddhism and meditation flourished while studying Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University. After completing his degree and teaching for a year, he traveled to Thailand to become a monk. He was ordained in Bangkok at the age of 23 by the Abbot of Watt Saket. He subsequently spent 9 year studying and training in the forest meditation tradition of the Venerable Ajahn Chah. In 1983, he was asked to assist in the establishing of a forest monastery near Perth, Western Australia. Ajahn Brahm now is the Abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery and the Spiritual Director of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia. He is also the Spiritual Patron of the Buddhist Fellowship in Singapore.
